ITAL 309 001 Perspectives on Italy (3 credits)

Teaching Schedule: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday; 10:05 am- 12:25 pm

Taught in Rome, Italy

Course details: A study of various topics relating to the perception of Italy, the country, its people and their culture as seen by foreign and/or Italian writers. TOPIC: This course examines how Italian “national” identity has emerged and evolved in a consistently multi-ethnic and multicultural environment. From Roman times, though the Middle Ages and Renaissance, during the Risorgimento and the process of national unification, and down to the present day, the sense of who is Italian and what it means to be Italian has been a contested ground characterized by negotiations between different peoples, cultures and identities. This is not surprising given Italy’s location in the middle of the Mediterranean which has always been a crossroad of civilizations. These reflections are intended to challenge the stereotypes of Italian-ness which circulate not only abroad but within Italy itself. This course is taught in Italian.

Teaching Qualification Requirements:
